I love chiptunes and game music remixes. The genre is very niche right now, but I hope it stays that way. Listening to chiptune music on my mp3 player is a normal occurance. However, I always felt as if I dipped my hand in trying to create the style of beat I would be at a loss.
In comes NESynth, the neat little app for the iPhone that allows users to create chiptune music. The caveat? It’s done so with retro 8-bit graphics and the option to control the music with either an NES or Famicom control pad. WICKED AWESOME. Add in the ability to play with partners and make beautiful music together, and you have an app worth more than the $2 iTunes asking price.
